if your even considering vinyl, go for it. It peels right off if don't like it and if you do you can change colors at your will.

I know what you mean..i was reeeeeeeeal hesitant but then I said fuck it...and I did it and it turned out really good..Im busy with the speedo cover, tweeter covers,fuse cover and the black peices covering the interior of the sideview Mirrors and the dome light cover...I will post pics on how they come along...The color is sooooo sweet, I have blue footwell neons, my sony headunit has a bright blue active matrix display with two hyper blue LED's on each side, the dash is indiglo, aswell as my pods...My final BLUEING project with be the gas and temp gauges...BTW...for your AC control lights and shifter light, remove the green plactic caps that cover each bulb, this makes it white(much better than green thumbsup) and it impoves the brightness and how much it will shine through the plastic... thumbsup

It all sound and looks great, please don't take my posts as dig against what your doing. I just want to help out others with another option.

My car has black center dash (vinyl), silver ac vents (blue bat kit), chrome gauge bezel (paint), chrome tweeter frames (paint), chrome dome light/ sun roof panel (paint), chrome power Mirror plate (paint), black passenger airbag cover (vinyl), silver door sill overlays (vinyl), silver door trim (vinyl), silver steering wheel (vinyl).

as you can see I use both thumbsup

[color=red][/color] Ok here is the 2nd to last update, Im just waitin on my pod holder to try and thats the final piece of operation blue LOL...

I finished the speedo surround and the door peices, the tweeter covers were a bitch to put back on and one of them actually chipped some paint so I touched it up right then and there on the door.. spineyes

The dome light came out good but there was some funky lines on the speedo surround but thats my fault...a lil too much paint I guess..but once mistake for my first time I think is allowable wtf

Here are some of the latest pics:
